consultants. mr. adelson is the subject of a big splashy interview today with "the wall street journal" that is chock-full of surprises. exhibit a, quoting mr. adelson, "look, i'm basically a social liberal. i know no one will believe that." clearly he wants you to believe that. he says he believes in stem cell research, and abortion rights. mr. adelson believes in the dream act for immigration reform. he believes in, this is a quote, socialized-like health care. "wall street journal" adding, quote, that he used to be a democrat, like most jewish americans, until he attended the 1988 democratic convention. he said he was appalled at the self-interested politicians he says were all over the place." just appalled. i'm sure politics and self-interest in the same place. if your irony meter just broke, it is because it appears the same sheldon adelson who says he rejected democratic politics because of self-interested politicians has become the single biggest donor in republican politics because of, yes, interest. for instance, mr. adelson's casino company is under investigation by the just
which i understand is what mr. adelson is reportedly planning to do? >> i'll tell you, this approach to trying to win your way into the political main stream is quite interesting. i guess if you have that kind of money, can you double down, so to spqb)k hedge your bets and go for what you don't know. the reality is if mr. adelson has that kind of cash, why not better create outlets to articulate his ideology beyond the political -- beyond the house and the senate and the republican nomination for presidency? in other words, why bet on mitt romney and eight governors who didn't win for you. he says he's in a business that pays dividends at some time but he doesn't want to change the political ideology of this nation. he wants to directly influence the decision makers over policy that will benefit his cronies. so it's not about the democratic process and about making this nation better. it's about getting your way and winning it and bullying it through your buck. if you got them, spend them. >> of course. he does have, i believe, $21 billion, according to forbes. >> that's a lot of dou
to push back on this? >> hum. yes. mr. adelson and these billionaires have declared war on the middle class, on the average american worker. they are out to destroy the lives of tens of millions of people. they don't give a rat's ass about any of this. so unless we get up off of the couch, and get active and get involved, they will win. now here's -- here's the good news. the reason why they have got to push this through in a lame duck session is because they know the they don't have the majority of michiganers with them. you don't try to suppress the vote if you think the majority of the vote is with you. if they thought was was a conservative country they would be doing the opposite. but they know their days are over. from gay marriage to now the majority of the american public believes that people should be able to marry the person they love and you have seen demographic stuff with the young voters. they are like two-thirds or three-quarters for all of these liberal things, they are for unions. they are for all of this stuff. i'm very optimistic about the futu
here. mr. adelson, how much money are you going to spend on the election? >> i did not touch her. she ran back into me. she just grabbed our camera. >> i know you were against the war in iraq, that is ok -- but you thought the war in afghanistan was -- was ok -- you thought that was worth doing. we did not check with the russians to see how they did there for 10 years. [laughter] but we did it. it was -- you know -- it was something -- to be thought about. >> when david koch sat down last night as a member of the u.s. delegation, i went over to ask a question. >> do you think unchecked concentration of wealth will undermine democracy? >> i could not quite hear you. i am deaf in one ear. >> we are not doing any interviews. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. [laughter] [applause] and to heal the planet. [laughter] my promise is to help you and your family. >> one of the first acts of civil disobedience at the democratic national convention took place on tuesday just outside the time warner cable center. >> we are here to ask president obama, who we need
